I love the taste of mandarins, but you can use any orange you love. If using a larger orange, you only need 1 orange for this recipe.
If you don’t have fresh oranges, you can use 1/2 cup of your favourite orange juice.
If your chia pudding comes out a bit liquidy, ad an extra couple tsp of chia seeds and let sit to soak up the liquid. If you’re chia pudding is too thick for your liking, add a bit more coconut milk.
